And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

2 Corinthians 9:8

The Feminine Side

The future is as bright as the promises of God!

Thoughts about the future have been on many people’s minds lately with the state of affairs in our world.  I am no exception, and when I was working in the kitchen recently getting ready for the family to come in for Thanksgiving I began to think about the future.  Immediately [...]

Choose Gratitude

Do you have an attitude of gratitude?   We have so much to be thankful for, and yet we so often choose to focus our thoughts on anything negative that presents itself in our lives.  In fact, if we’re honest, sometimes we go looking for it!  Shame on us!  It’s a [...]

Be Still and Know

Have you ever been at your “wit’s end”?  I think we have all been there or at least expressed a nearness of that destination!  That very expression is used in Psalm 107:27 to describe a group of storm-tossed, troubled people whose soul melts within them.  “They reel to and fro, [...]

Bring Spring Into Your Soul

Spring brings an excitement of freshness, new life, warmth, activity.  We can get outside and enjoy God’s creation in ways we can’t when it’s cold and everything seems dead. Are you enjoying the spiritual part of your life, or does it seem cold and dead like the winter?  It is [...]

Christ’s Humility

Jesus had every right and privilege to all the riches of heaven, and yet, not seeing that as something to hold onto, He willingly gave up those rights in obedience to God and for service to others.  He is our supreme example of humility, considering others interests more important than [...]

Paul and Silas

It’s hard to imagine Paul and Silas at midnight praying and singing praises to God while iron clamps held their ankles tightly in the stocks of the dark, dreary, inner dungeon of the Philippian prison. Unjustly accused, stripped, beaten, whipped and bleeding, and now here they sit, not having a [...]

Faithful God

“Each of us may be sure that if God sends us on stony paths He will provide us with strong shoes, and He will not send us out on any journey for which He does not equip us well.”  Maclaren (Streams in the Desert) I wonder what journeys we will [...]

Consider David

Consider David, one of the greatest of all Bible characters.  A man after God’s own heart, and yet he committed great sin.  But after experiencing the chastening hand of his loving, faithful God and being confronted by Nathan the prophet, he repents and experiences God’s forgiveness and cleansing.  2 Samuel [...]
